I can't believe I forgot to post this, I found it somewhere and added it to YouTube back in January 2007. It's had it's fair share of hits.
Someone left a comment recently which reminded me that I had missed it.
Of course it is by that awesome one (and a half?) hit wonder John Otway.
This is John at his wildest and most raucous.
Here he is getting very introspective, or not.
I am a lion
And for something completely different, here is one of his most beautiful songs.
Someone has produced a montage of photo's of John with this great song.
Sing along with John:
Geneva take her to yourself
And Watch her while she rests you know she talks of you as home
Ill try to get to her somehow
While in your arms she lies
I hope she will not feel alone
And I for the many things Ive donecarry on n play the same song
Cos I never new a better way of loving... Do you
For she is so young an in my dreams you'll see me playing for the screaming ladies of Los Angeles
And when I decided that would be my stage I was her age
I remember that was a tender time for me
Geneva Easters been n gone n fate has played its hand n I am on my own
But warm is the hand that holds my arm
An always leads me on so I never can stay long
So smile n ill see you in a while
As a tourist an a child but not a loser
For you knew love is a very much harder thing to have
For I am still young and its true
That I don't regret n I don't forget n I ain't going to
An as I wipe away all the traces of Lisa blues
It is my shoes that walk across the stage for the applause
Geneva take her to your self
And Watch her while she rests you know she talks of you as home.
